And also that the tailgate hits the ground preventing tip up :tears-of-joy:
Not so sure….definitely not on the left (near side) side, but the right hand side could be…..and it certainly would once the casualties are in. In fact, once the casualties are loaded it might be hard to close it again :surprised:

Also that vehicle has exactly the same markings as the decals on my model, apart from an extra one under the 625 and also the 141 which was the Decal which self destructed on me.

There were 4 options with the model, 3 USA and 1 French and I chose this one.

Good research everyone and thanks

Blimey. I've been so focussed on cleaning seamlines I can't even type anymore.
Don’t you just love autocorrect :thumb2: Figures look good to me. They take longer to clean up than people realise…..

The figures will set this off very nicely. I would imagine there would be a step of some sort to enable the nurses to get in and out easier.

I haven't had much bench time recently but have made a bit of progress.

The figures have been primed and a black wash applied. Now time to paint them. I can't put it off forever.

I've also added a step to back of tbe ambulance and weathered the ambulance with washes and pigments. I've tried to create a dusty look.

They look nice figures. They often do take a lot of clean up and sorting out but definitely add a lot of interest to model.

Well that was fun and quite difficult. My first attempt at figures. I'm not going to build a base but once I've varnished these figures and maybe weathered them a bit to be in keeping with the ambulance, I'll publish some better photos in the completed section.

I think I need to read up more on painting figures. I looked at a few blogs and videos including Tim's recent SBS, but like anything it's going to take alot more practice.

The eyes in particular were very difficult and looking at this picture the wounded solidier looks like his mascara has run. I'll touch that up before varnishing
